First Steps

For those of you who know me personally, you are already aware of my love for organizing. I am addicted to Real Simple and Target (two things I miss TERRIBLY in Germany) and I subscribe to serveral dozen organizing blogs. In practice, i mostly like the act of buying organizational materials and unwrapping them, writing those first neatly handwritten labels and invisioning my organization prowess. This ambition, however, usually vanishes within a few weeks and I am back to happily throwing all my papers into one pile.

But what better excuse to buy new shiny binders and exciting plastic sleeves and labels than planning a WEDDING? So I ventured out today and purchased a pretty plum (a possible wedding color) filofax, with all the trimmings, and a neat filing book for bigger brochures and notes. Here are my purchases.

I wish I could have bought the wedding planner as seen here but they don't ship to Germany! I think I am going to definitely print out many of their PDFs though, and probably use Miss Cloud's categorization system.

Any tips to keep myself motivated to stay organized?
